Well, when I do eventually have to attend a meeting, appointment, audition, or class, I pile on the layers. And this includes tending to what can become dry, cracked, and chapped skin due to the blistering cold temperatures and even worse windchill. Now, I haven't always been so attentive to caring for my skin and moisturizing, but over the holidays--when I had time to moisturize twice a day, everyday, and then some--I noticed what a difference it makes when you actually take the time to hydrate your skin. And what a glow! So, now--and especially since it's become so cold and dry outside--I've been slathering on the lotion in hopes of preserving that youthful glow we so desire.
Here are my favourite products that I like to use on the regular to maintain my skin's moisture and keep that healthy glow even through the otherwise drab winter months.
Bonus: there's only a few and they're all totally affordable.
|St. Ives Intensive Healing Body Lotion is my pick for an all-over body|
lotion; be sure to moisturize right after a shower, $6.
|Carmex Lip Balm is my go-to for chapped lips (aside from good ol' Vaseline,|
of course!); it's got this great cooling effect that I just love, about $3.
|Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion is a newer discovery of mine, and|
while Aveeno products can tend to cost a little more than say, St. Ives, they're
totally worth it; I use this lotion mostly for hands and feet, $7.
|Vaseline is the answer to all of your dry/cracked/chapped skin woes, there's|
no need to buy expensive lotions; Vaseline is the ultimate moisturizer, it
doesn't clog pores, and it's unscented (perfect for those sensitive skin types), $5.
